Learntec 2022 will take place in Karlsruhe from May 31 to June 2, 2022. This year, Figments.nrw can also present itself with a lecture at Europe’s largest event for digital education in schools, universities and the workplace.
Learning is embedded in social contexts. Learning with Figments.nrw in virtual reality is not excluded from the need to create safe spaces for these interactions. Therefore, we are designing a system for Personal Spaces that on the one hand protects our learners and on the other hand helps us to develop reactive interaction methods based on it.
After a longer break, we are back with our devblog. A lot has happened in the past weeks and months: We tested a first prototype together with students, developed a virtual showroom for Figments.nrw and implemented new features, including one of our first reusable Figments: An interactive whiteboard.
Today we talk about the integration of video streaming and voice chat with Agora as well as the implementation of individualized avatars with the help of ReadyPlayer.Me. We also talk about a first learning scenario.
Where we talk about virtual classrooms, new learning environments and ways to bridge the gap between virtual reality and desktop users.
This week marks the start of our devblog, in which we will try to keep you up to date with all the exciting (and the necessary mundane) stuff we are working on. As this is the first time we share our current activities with you, we would also like to talk about the work we did up until now.
As one of the first public appearances of AR/VR.nrw for the broader public, the CampusSource Conference 2021 was the perfect opportunity to showcase the core vision, goals and current activities in the project.
